generous sun... (pm.12nov.13)>

Tuesday's stats:

Low temp: 48.7F (9.3C)
High temp: 57.7F (14.3C)
Rainfall: none

We've just had one of the most clear and starkly beautiful sunsets of the season, after a day of mostly sunny skies with afternoon clouds remaining confined to the Dhauladhar range.  This morning's low temp was one of the coolest this season so far, but our afternoon high was only slightly below yesterday's -- which remains just a bit below normal for this time of the year.  Humidity was rather low, ranging from 33% to 42% today. 

There is a tightly packed upper-level circulation and associated pool of very cold air aloft just to our northwest over northern Pakistan.  It generated quite a bit of cloudiness over Jammu & Kashmir today, and could still threaten us with some PM cloud build-ups mainly over the mountains tomorrow (Wed).  Otherwise we are enveloped in a seasonably dry atmosphere, with low humidity and little chance of any measurable rainfall, which should last for at least the next several days.

As that upper-level system weakens and gets ejected to the northeast by early Thursday, we'll see a west-southwesterly flow take hold across most of northwest India.  That should allow our temperatures to moderate gradually as we head into the weekend and early next week.  It looks like we should have plenty of sunshine and some pleasantly mild temps to savor.
